Assuming you mean the Specialized Globe, a better Trek comparison to it would be the 7.2 FX.
The 7200 uses the same frame style, but has a suspension shock and seatpost. Also the 7200's handlebars are more friendly to a more sitting back position by being slightly swept back and more upright. The Globe and FX lines are more flat to a aid a slightly more aggressive position. The seat on the 7200 is more comfort and upright oriented than the others too.
Do the differences of the 7200 appeal to you? the globe and FX lines are going to be a bit "faster" and more efficient, the 7200 will be a more of a laid back and "comfy" bike.
The Specialized Crossroads would be a better contender for the 7200.
How tall are you?
EDIT, both Treks have the suspension seat post...
